NS NEMBA App

Tuesday, September 21, 2021

New!  

The NSNEMBA app launched in June 2021 and riders have quickly adopted it.  

This deceptively simple app has streamlined communications about rides and events taking away the ambiguity of multiple posts in multiple places.   

If you’re interested in what’s going on in the North Shore, we encourage you to check it out at www.nsnemba.app.  

See you on the trails!   Read more about [node:title]
